    Oh, I don’t think I could read “Brain on Fire”, I think it would freak me out too much! A bit of a hypochondriac here! 😉

  2. Brain on fire looks intense. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by my post

    • Her book must’ve been generated by the article she did about it for The New York Post. It actually seemed like an extra-long article – you can definitely tell she’s a journalist.

  3. Kindred sounds like nothing I’ve ever read before, very intrigued! I’ll look out for you thoughts on it!

  4. Wow Kindred looks intriguing!

  5. Brain on Fire looks interesting!
    Thanks for stopping by!

    I’m really interested in Brain on Fire. Can’t wait to see your thoughts on it.

    • I liked it although it wasn’t quite what I imagined. She seemed to fill space a bit with short descriptions of video clips from her hospital stay, which didn’t seem very necessary or to add much to the story. Perhaps doing so helped her come to terms with the blank periods of her memory.

  7. Thanks so much for your visit to my WWW! I have Kindred on the TBR pile too, I’m thinking it might be one of those that I would rather listen to though. We used to go to the Ozarks every summer for a week, family trip with the grandparents, parents and aunt, those were good, innocent times… Have a great week!

    • I live in and love the area, too (@onlyintheozarks on twitter) and visit the Lake of the Ozarks every summer. My current Camp NaNoWriMo writing project is about two young women on their own for the first time and living at the lake. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    • I’m liking the audio version of Kindred (good narrator) and have enjoyed listening to other of Octavia E. Butler’s work on cd.

  8. I love Octavia Butler!!! Kindred is currently on my bookshelf, need to read it!

    • I love Butler, too, and continue to devour all of her work I can find. This one was good, too, in a very “Quantum Leap” sort of way (you may not remember that t.v. show). The only criticism I have is that it ended too abruptly. At the end, I thought, “That’s it? No way … what happened?” You should definitely read it anyway.
